2012 Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings: Week 1
By: Athlon Sports | 9/5/12, 2:01 PM EDT
It's been seven long months, but fantasy football and our fantasy football positional rankings are back!
Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any Web site can give you.
